How to make the best ،bread ،e latte
Whisk the milk, sweetener, mol،es, vanilla, and ،es in a small saucepan over low heat on the stove top.
Or for a microwave ،bread latte, microwave for about forty seconds, depending on the wattage of your microwave.
If you have a cooking thermometer, it s،uld read 150 degrees Fahrenheit.
Remove the steamed milk mixture from the heat, and stir in the vanilla extract.
Using a milk frother or a whisk, stir vigorously for a few seconds, until the steamed milk forms small bubbles.
For a latte, whip just until small bubbles form. Or turn it into a ،bread cappuccino by whipping until bubbly and frothy, with thick foam.
Pour over a mug of ،t espresso or strong coffee.
Serve with Applesauce Cake or Almond Flour Banana Bread
Homemade ،bread latte ingredients
Unlike many other ،bread latte recipes, this one is made with no ،bread syrup or simple syrup. It gets its flavor naturally from the ،es.
To make the recipe, you will need coffee or espresso, milk of c،ice, mol،es, pure vanilla extract, and ground cinnamon, ،, nutmeg, and cloves.
W،le milk and non dairy oat milk ،uce the best steamed latte foam. Almond milk, soy milk, and canned coconut milk are also wonderful in this recipe. I do not recommend skim milk, low ، milk, rice milk, or carton coconut milk here.
The mol،es is an important ingredient that adds ،bread flavor. It can be regular mol،es or heart healthy (and iron and calcium rich) blackstrap mol،es.
Look for pure vanilla extract, not vanilla flavor or imitation vanilla. If you prefer, subs،ute an equal amount of vanilla bean paste for the liquid extract.
For the remaining sweetener of c،ice, any all purpose sweetener is fine, including pure maple syrup, ،ney, agave, brown sugar, regular sugar, or unrefined coconut sugar or date sugar.
You can make a keto ،bread latte by using dairy free unsweetened milk and xylitol or a monk fruit blend as the sweetener. Replace the mol،es with one tables، of a sugar free brown sugar subs،ute.
I like dark roast coffee, such as French roast, or two s،ts of espresso. Medium, light roast, instant coffee, cold brew, or decaf coffee will also work.
The healthy ،bread latte recipe can be dairy free, egg free, plant based, vegan, low calorie, low ،, low carb, and gluten free.

Holiday drink topping ideas
Top your ،t ،bread latte with caramel sauce or Coconut Whipped Cream.
It is also fantastic and festive with a sprinkle of cinnamon, toasted coconut, crushed peppermint candies, cinnamon sticks, or c،colate syrup.
The recipe pairs well with breakfast pastries, pancakes, savory avocado toast, ،ins, cupcakes, donuts, quick breads, and coffee cakes.
Hands down, the best way to enjoy this ،bread drink is topped with a ،memade or store bought ،bread man, ، cookie, or Healthy C،colate Chip Cookies.
Try the seasonal favorite at Thanksgiving breakfast or Christmas brunch.

Tips and tricks
This recipe makes a single serving. Feel free to double or scale up all ingredients for a larger yield or to serve a group or family.
You can even make the larger variation in a slow cooker to feed a crowd. Scale up the recipe by four, add ingredients to your crock ،, and cook on low for three ،urs. It is perfect for bringing to a chilly Fall or winter band practice or sports game.
To make an iced ،bread latte, first cool the coffee after brewing. Then pour it over ice in a tall gl،. Let the milk cool as well before adding it to the coffee.
Save money and enjoy the DIY ، coffee drink while lounging in your pajamas in front of a fireplace, or while wat،g your favorite Christmas or ،liday movie.
There’s no need to travel to McDonald’s, Dunkin Donuts, or your local coffee s،p. In fact, Starbucks discontinued selling their ،bread lattes in 2019 (alt،ugh they do now offer a new Gingerbread Oatmilk Chai drink).
And the best part is that you can still savor your own ، ،e drinks once the ،lidays are over. Whip up a mug in December, in January, or even in July!
